We conclude our week of PastyVision with a spot where
M-26 cuts through the Cliff range (and so does Eagle River). It has
been suggested that the old barn on the right would make a good walk-in
museum, with pictures and artifacts from the mining days.
(most of these leaves will be gone by next weekend)

The peninsula was invaded today by the students from
Ontonagon Area Schools, on their annual foray into the heart of the Copper
Country. This shot at the Douglass Houghton Monument around noon
today reveals much about the temperature.
(although it is a bit dryer than yesterday)

NEWS FLASH! At 3:05pm today, with a temp of
36°, the first tiny snow flakes of the season were spotted. Of
course, any which reached the pavement quickly met its demise.

church from last weekend)

Have you ever stopped at the scenic turnout overlooking
the canal and lift bridge? Zooming across this awesome panorama we
spot the Houghton County Courthouse. Notice how it appeared on the
Pasty Cam last May.
